Campus and Crime Map

Student Accommodation

  • Full-time unaccompanied first years who apply by the specified deadline in autumn, are guaranteed a room in university-owned, partnership, managed or directed accommodation.
  • The University of Hull offers a number of housing options for both first-year undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as for those come to study at Hull from abroad.
  • The new Westfield Court (September 2018) provides on-campus accommodation for more than 1,400 students. Rooms and apartments have en-suite or shared bathroom facilities, and there's a café, shop, laundry facilities and outdoor spaces. The new Courtyard houses 560 students on the main campus in a mixture of standard rooms in eight-bedroom flats, deluxe rooms in four-bedroom flats and rooftop, one-bedroom apartments – all convenient for lectures and for using the university's facilities in the evening.
  • Other options include 102 two-storey terraced student houses owned by the university and located in streets adjacent to the campus. Most houses accommodate five people and offer self-catered accommodation in single rooms. Bathroom facilities are shared, and there is a kitchen for preparing meals. Most, but not all, also have a small social area within the kitchen which is great for getting to know housemates. 
  • The University of Hull also offers university-leased accommodation where properties are owned by private landlords but managed by the university. Mostly these offer double beds (smaller rooms have singles) and all have shared bathroom facilities; again, most properties are close to campus.

Accommodation Costs

Student Life

  • City Population: 256,406
  • Student Population: 23,043
  • Water on one side, the open unspoiled plains of Yorkshire on the other; perhaps that's why the horizons seem wider in Hull. Its maritime past means this has always been a place where people gather to trade, mingle, and relax – and that's just as true today. In the cobbled old town you'll find comfy pubs, quirky shops, great nightclubs, eclectic cafés, a vibrant student quarter and the cosmopolitan waterfront.

Culture and Nightlife

  • The creativity and sense of community in Hull helped name it UK City of Culture 2017, a title celebrated until 2021 in all of its many galleries, venues, and public spaces – including a new 3,500-capacity concert arena, known as Hull Venue.
  • There are annual festivals for film, comedy, jazz, photography, science, literature, and music; and of course, some big-name events such as Freedom Festival, Humber Street Sesh and Pride. Hull's full of life and colour – and is celebrated for it.
  • Hull's lively social scene includes numerous restaurants, traditional pubs and bars. Newland Avenue and Prince's Avenue have seen a rapid expansion of continental-style bars and cafés.
  • Hull Fair, one of the country's oldest and largest fairs, takes place in early October each year, centred on Walton Street outdoor market.


  • Hull has good transport links to Leeds, Manchester, and Liverpool, as well as the rest of the UK.
  • Cycling is a popular way to get around Hull. There are lockable bike sheds on the university campus and at student residences.
  • A good bus service runs in and around the city. A bus stop is located on Cottingham Road, just outside the main entrance to the university, with a ten-minute bus ride to the city centre.
  • The city-centre railway station is approximately ten minutes' drive from the University of Hull campus.
  • The city is easily accessible by car, via the A63, and M62.
